Movement:  616589, No.3364, U.S. Patent, D.R.P. 388992, Hier unten Ersatzstücke (=here beneath spare parts) - 616589, Excelsior Park - calibre Excelsior 1, Geneva stripes, 7 jewels, stem wind, Swiss lever escapement, ring balance, flat hairspring, patented spare-part compartment (likely still original contents Fig.4)

Nice is the split winding-gear bridge in the shape of a capital "J", back then met in this shape on all adverts of the manufacturer Jeanneret-Brehm. More useful is the spare-part compartment. As this still contains the most likely needed balance staff, the parts set is likely still complete.

Mechanical Stop Watches
are still up to date: Stopper app already installed, no battery, no charging device, handy, always ready to use. Thus no surprise that they are still produced and even bought. And when comparing old vs new, consider that wear is no issue for stop watches; most run only occasionally few minutes.
